Once again, a pretty good week in a rough week to be picking FCS games.
I went 18-8, only really getting burned on the biggest shocker of the day (South Dakota over Eastern Washington) and going overaggressive on an FBS upset that very nearly happened (Central Arkansas lost to Louisiana Tech in OT).
More happily, I called Towson's "upset" over Villanova, Sacramento State's letdown againt Southern Utah, and even Duquesne's bounceback game vs. Dayton. Those were not gimmes by any stretch of the imagination.
That puts me at a lofty 53-15 for the year, or at about 78%. And I'm aiming to do even better this week.
